Table description


This table presents economic data for the environmental goods and services sector. Labour input, output and gross value added of the environmental goods and services sector are presented.

Output and gross value added are measured in basic prices and labour input is measured in full time equivalents (employed persons).

The environmental goods and services sector consists of a group of companies and authorities involved in activities with respect to measuring, preventing, limiting, minimalizing or correcting environmental damage to water, air and soil, and problems related to waste, noise and ecosystems (OECD, 1999; Eurostat 2009).

This definition includes 'cleaner technologies' and 'cleaner goods and services' which reduce environmental risk and minimize the use of natural resources and pollution. The definition of the environmental goods and services sector is determined on European level and is used by EU-countries accordingly.
The businesses and institutions belonging to the environmental goods and services sector can be subdivided to industries. In this table only businesses that execute environmental activities as primary or secondary activities are classified to economic industry. The ancillary activities are therefore presented separately. The activities that belong to the environmental goods and services sector can also be subdivided to environmental domains.
The before mentioned economic data of the environmental goods and services sector are presented in the following variables:
-Labour input of employed persons, full time equivalents
-Output at basic prices, mln Euro
-Gross value added at basic prices, mln Euro

Data available from 1995 to 2010.

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2010 are revised provisional. As this table has been discontinued, they will not become definite.

Changes as of 13 November 2013:

When will new figures be published?
No longer applicable.
This table will be replaced by Environmental Goods and Services Sector; industries, economic indicators. See section 3.

Description topics

Labour input of employed persons
The input of labour that is deployed in a certain period. The labour input can be expressed as jobs, years of employment and hours of employment.
Employed persons are all individuals working at a company that is settled in The Netherlands or at a private household in The Netherlands.
Employed persons are considered all individuals performing paid labour, even if it is for just one or a few hour a week, even if they:
- perform labour that is legal, but which from the payment is withdrawn from registration by the treasury and social security authorities ('black labour');
- do not perform any labour temporary, but still get payment (e.g. in case of illness or hold-ups due to frost;
- are on holiday temporary, without payment.
Employed persons can be categorised in employees and freelancers.
Employees are individuals performing labour for a certain period, in return of payment or salary, in money or in kind.
Freelancers are individuals receiving income by performing labour at their own expenses and risk, for the company or profession they practise independently. Participating members of the family are also considered freelancers, unless they start an employment contract.

The internal environmental activities are not specified for industry classes A - U.
The total environmental goods and services sector (including internal environmental activities) are represented by "Total Dutch economy".
The total environmental goods and services sector equals industry classes A - U plus internal environmental activities.
Output at basic prices
Output (basic prices) covers the value of all goods produced for sale, including unsold goods, and all receipts for services rendered. Output furthermore covers the market equivalent of goods and services produced for own use, such as own account capital formation, services of owner-occupied dwellings and agricultural products produced by farmers for own consumption.
The output of such goods is estimated by valuing the quantities produced against the price that the producer would have received if these goods had been sold. Output is valued at basic prices, defined as the price received by the producer excluding trade and transport margins and the balance of taxes and subsidies on products. This is the price the producer is ultimately left with.

The total environmental goods and services sector equals industry classes A - U plus internal environmental activities.
Gross value added at basic prices
Value added at basic prices is equal to the difference between production (basic prices) and intermediate consumption.
The internal environmental activities are not specified for industry classes A - U.
